Epilepsy is a combination of multiple types of seizures, while if you only have one seizure type it is considered to be a non epileptic seizure. A seizure basically consists of the mis firing of the neurotransmitters of the brain.
There are also a number of different types of seizures, each of which can effect a different part of the brain. Seizures long term can affect many things , such as long and/or short term memory. If you are currently seeing a doctor for epilepsy, than your probably aware of different types of seizures. For those that are unaware of the many types, here are some videos giving a brief explaination of each.

Epilepsy can have negative effects on different areas of ones’ life in numerous ways. There are many ways to combating this and get help through support in communities. This is an opportunity to share your journey with others and show that you can overcome any condition while reaching the goals you have.
There are many different types of seizures, so many in fact that sometimes you dont understand what type your having. It is also great to have a good doctor that listens to you and is concerned for your well-being. With this condition though, much of the success is your responsibility since you may have more knowledge on knowing what some of the triggers may be.
In fact, many times it has been shown that in certain situations it doesn’t matter how much medication you take, it may not help in the frequency of seizures. This may be because the triggers may stem from a different root such as stress or depression.
Some factors affected by this condition include transportation and even maintaining employment. Some employers may release you after you have a seizure due to it being a liability, although this is hard if not impossible to prove. Overall, even though epilepsy may not seem much of an issue since its a condition that is not on the outside, it can still have negative effects.
We hope that this site will help and assist those dealing specifically with epilepsy in finding other sources available if current medications you are taking are not helping. If you’ve tried numerous medications that haven’t worked there are other options many of which are naturally occuring.
